Hey from Philly...

Hey guys....

I have been lurkin onthe forum for a bit ~ lookin into getting a 2009-2010 Rubi or Sahara.... havent decided between 2 or 4 doors...

Tryin to do all of my research, etc so dont shoot me for any stupid questions.

Dont laugh, but I currently drive a 2009 Mini Cooper S Convertible, but the car is a lemon and theyre buying it back from me so... I'm a little leary about vehicles without solid tops, as the issue with mine was that it leaked... I see a couple of posts on here about that... is it a big issue or random?

Any advice or input you guys could give me would be great!

Welcome ...seems to be a random issue. Regardless, you'll never own a better vehicle.

Welcome to the Forum Swooper. I don't know about the JK's leaking, but I have an 06 unlimited and have never had any problems with water on the inside unless I put it there. (went through a stream that was a little high or took a ride without the top on a rainy day) But it needed a good interior cleaning anyway. You have come to the right place for your research and don't worry, we don't shoot, well not right away.

Im basically new here also, just a month now. BUT, I do know about leaks. If you get a TJ (like I did) I got one with a new Bestop. They seem to be the best replacements so far. Anyway the top was fairly new. So what do you do to check it out? Take it to the nearest car wash, if there's a leak it'll show up there. Mine didn't leak and hasn't leaked since that test. And I use the car wash often since it so tight.

Good luck and WELCOME, these guys know a lot.

Thanks guys.... Hoping I dont run into the same issue with my 2010 that I did with my 09 Mini...

I am about to order it from the dealer... getting the dual top, Infinity sound package (I like to be able to hear my music when the top isnt on), and the Limited Slip .... those are the only things I'm adding on - how do you feel about that?

I made the mistake last time of not researching before I put out thousands of dollars and I'm hoping to learn more in advance this time... of the three things I listed above, is any of it NOT necessary? I'm pretty stuck on the dual top option... are there other things I should be getting instead?

Thanks guys!
